Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

I had mine in to the dealer recently for some other work. ... Following BMS undate on my 2016, (before battery replacement) few charging cycles were required for GOM to show real life. Do you see increase in range? (driven not on GOM) with new BMS. I noticed slower charging current on level 2 (over...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Do you know if they put the new cells into your original case. You can see the sticker by looking under the back of the car. Sticker on my pack indicate P/N 37501-4050. With dirt on it, it was original one (from 2016). Actually in Canada/Quebec, they reuse case and exchange 8 battery blocks and cha...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

From reading with Torque and Soul EV Spy, it shows 96*2 cells managed by BMS. Total voltage also indicate total of 96 groupss. My guess is my car will only use 96 out of available 100, with likely intermediate pack connection (4 not used at all). It would do the math since dealer service department ...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

Got new battery this week (37510-E4250R) on my 2016. So far all is perfectly fine and it seems to show larger autonomy than original 27kWh. After "Googling" part number, i noticed remanufacture battery packs are now offered from KIA at $1600 usd. https://www.kia.parts/oem-parts/kia-remanuf...

Re: Heat pump stopped working after climate software update SA427

Good news from Canadian front. Went to dealer Today for main battery check. They told me new BMS/FACT was required on my car. Guess it is new one since it was first time technical advisor saw that particular one. Leaving dealer at 10 deC, heatpump was roaring again. :) I will try to share update inf...

Re: Heat pump stopped working after climate software update SA427

Thank you for that. Mine is going on to the dealer on Monday so that they can see the behavior. Unfortunately it is warming up here so I'm not sure how many more days we will have for then to get to the bottom of this before October. Agree on the software version being European only, but at least i...

Re: I only get 50 km, 2015 Soul estimates 130.

Yes, I told them about the requirement that the outside temp should be at least 10ºC for this. They checked with Kia HQ and tell me that is not necessary :? So I'll do as I'm told and then go back. Let's see what happens. Same here, got BMS update last december and since then battery, condition is ...

Re: Climate control bug? Vent mode keeps reverting to auto

Maybe procedure is deferent for different year of car e...

Re: Heat pump stopped working, no apparent cause

My dealer did some test on my car Today and confirm heatpump does work but only over 15 degC. No big surprise since I did the same in my garage few weeks ago, after reading this thread. They have collected data for further analysis by KIa . Fairly big dealer near Montreal, but first time that problm...
